Wormrot cancels U.S. tour

Friday, March 17, 2017 11:44 AM PT


Wormrot has scrapped their recently announced tour of the United States. The Singaporean band has issued the following statement:

"Due to the current political climate and numerous bands being turned away at US customs, we felt it was not worth the risk coming to America without the right paperwork, which is expensive. Therefore we truly apologize that we must postpone our US tour until next year when we can focus on a full length tour with all the right papers. We regret that we came to a decision this late, one month to the start of the tour. Once again, we apologize to everyone who are affected."

Have to say this... both as a hugely Anti-Trump person and a Wormrot fan. The band basically admitted that they were planning to come here without proper paperwork. It's not about political climate (which, of course, does suck right now with the travel bans, etc) -- it's now simply about them breaking the law to come tour. This type of crap makes it harder to defend anti-travel ban opinions. We need a Homer Simpson "DOH" gif in this article.

"Hey guys, we're too lazy to make the effort required to tour in a foreign country, so we're just not gonna go on a tour."

Not a single taco on this thread knows anything about touring anyways, but just to break it down quick for you idiots, not only do tons of bands tour illegally here, but US bands do it literally all of the time, particularly touring Canada, constantly skirting immigration regulations so keep as much money in the gas tank as possible.

SO coming from a US born and bred individual:
TL;DR fck Trump, touring America sucks anyways, and fck all of you wannabe punk posers too.
